The volume V of a prismatoid can be found by means of the formula ,
V = 1/6?H?(S_{1} + 4S + S_{2})
where H is its altitude ( the distance between its bases planes), S1 and S2  are the areas of the bases, S  the area of the middle section ( the section that is parallel to the bases planes and bisects the altitude).
